A young sex worker with face tattoos who mysteriously vanished from a wedding and reemerged at a brothel reveals she now makes $15,000 per month on OnlyFans.
Kimberley Summer Hartley, who goes by the name , sparked a national manhunt when she disappeared from a Gold Coast wedding in August last year.
She was found a week later by police at Desires brothel in Woolongong, south of Sydney, and opened up to Daily Mail Australia about her dreams of running a sex empire.
While coronavirus social restrictions have impacted her ability to monetise her sex life, the 21-year-old has made thousands posting X-rated photos to OnlyFans.

Ms Salt, 21, posts a series of X-rated photos and posts them to her OnlyFans social media account
OnlyFans is a non-censored social media platform where users pay creators a subscription fee to view their content. Photos and videos are often X-rated.
‘I take full nudes, and photos of my b**hole and stuff,’ she told Daily Mail Australia.
‘I guess it’s pretty gross,’ she laughed. ‘I usually do full porn in there, but I haven’t had sex with anyone since being in New Zealand, so I can’t post videos.’
Ms Salt was born in New Zealand but has lived in Australia since she was three, and flew home to Christchurch in March during the initial spread of COVID-19.
‘When I was in Australia, among us mod ips I’d film myself having sex,’ she explained.
‘So if I was about to sex with someone, I’d ask if they were okay with me filming it for my OnlyFans, and they’d say yes.’

Ms Salt said the situation is a hassle because she had to reschedule her Brazilian bum lift
‘Most don’t care because you can’t see their face, just their c**k.’
While she regrets heading back to her hometown because it has stifled her ability to do business and she has been unable to see her friends, Ms Salt said the situation is a hassle because she had to reschedule her Brazilian bum lift.
The procedure, which involves surgery to siphon fat from the mid-section and inject it in to the derriere, has been moved from August to November in Sydney.
‘That was annoying because I spent $6,000 on a yacht party for my friends and I to celebrate my one year anniversary on OnlyFans, but now that’s when my surgery is.’
Despite multiple attempts to book flights to Sydney, including month ago where she sold all her possessions in Christchurch to fly across the Tasman Sea, every flight has been cancelled because of the pandemic.
Ms Salt has shared her experience trying to get back to Australia to her 72,500 followers on TikTok , which include a series of teary videos
Ms Salt previously said she became a sex worker because she had few other job prospects, said she was insecure about her body until she got a series of tattoos
‘I’m a really social person so it’s been hard to be away, but I made $15,000 dollars on OnlyFans last month, so this isn’t a pity party,’ she joked.
‘But I have been a bit sad in New Zealand, so when all this is over, I just want to be me and have fun.’
Ms Salt previously said she became a sex worker because she had few other job prospects, said she was insecure about her body until she got a series of tattoos.
‘My sense of self before tattoos was honestly disgusting,’ she said.
‘I was literally 5’6″ and 60kg and I thought I was so fat. I look back on pictures now and it’s like, who let me think that way about myself?

The tattoo that stands out the most on Ms Salt’s body is a Billie Eilish song lyric, which is inked on her forehead (pictured)
‘So many people, including my family would comment on my body and that stuff just sticks with you I guess.
‘But sex work taught me that no matter who you are or what you look like – skinny, fat, Caucasian, a person of colour, cis, trans, anything – there will always be a large group of people who find you beautiful, even if you don’t.’
The tattoo that stands out the most on Miss Hartley’s body is a Billie Eilish song lyric, which is inked on her forehead.
It reads ‘heaven’s out of sight’, a line from the star’s song All the Good Girls go to Hell, and is one of her favourites.

She said: I look back on pictures now and it’s like, who let me think that way about myself? (pictured: Kimberley Hartley, now known as Veruca Salt, before she had tattoos, age 17)
‘When I got my forehead tattooed, I just remember feeling so good afterwards.
‘Billie Eilish means a lot to me so I love it because I love her.’
The tattooed woman first made headlines when she disappeared off the radar for seven days following her mate’s wedding.
She said she simply left her phone behind at her hotel and was waiting for it to be posted back.
But her friends were deeply concerned because they knew her as a ‘social media addict’ who ‘would go without food before she went without her phone’.
A plea for help finding Ms Salt went viral on social media and she was later found living at a brothel in Wollongong.

Given the extreme publicity, Ms Salt then decided to go public with the fact she was a sex worker.
‘I’m not ashamed of telling people I’m a sex worker,’ she said.
‘But I’m a pretty private person, and letting the whole world in on my biggest secret scares me.’
Ms Salt said she had been working at brothels since she was 18 – and started because she had ‘no money and no nothing’.
‘A girl I knew was going into a brothel so I just went with her to check it out…
‘After my first pay, I knew there was no going back,’ she said.
‘I now love my job. I love being able to do what I want when I want and having as much freedom as anyone could ask for.’
